lake grasses

with the riot of color and blooms out there, which are all gorgeous, i like these two photos, still.
the quiet side of spring.
things are changing and growing and being renewed in all sorts of ways. some not as showy as others, but all a part of the hopefulness and potential of these in-between months.

today driving home i heard a song by allison krauss, and was reminded of how i felt when i very first heard her sing, in the movie down from the mountain. i had never heard a voice quite as pretty. this just seems to suit a gentle spring day.

more tomorrow. thanks for reading.

oh how i love alison krauss. i believe it was cold mountain that led me to her. and i haven't heard of down from the mountain - and i love the oh brother where art thou soundtrack. i just put the down from the mountain dvd on hold at the library. thanks!

and the picture of the bird nest is so beautiful - reminds me of a few weeks ago when i saw a little gray phoebe fly up in a tree holding one of our chicken's feathers in her mouth. if only i could find her nest.
